Stories from FAWN’s Newsletter
Duchess, FAWN’s Mascot, was FAWN’s first rescue in 1997 along with her two kittens. Duchess, a dilute calico, lives happily at the local Catnip Sanctuary. Sister Cat, the surviving offspring, lives in a local barn. This tabby loves to be petted and plays the loving aunty giving company and comfort to her fellow barn cats.
WHERE DO STRAY AND FERAL CATS COME FROM?
These cats that nobody owns result when people do not spay or neuter their pets. Often they come from a dumped, unwated litter. Others are abandoned when they’re no longer tiny, cute kittens or their owners move away. They face a scary existence: weather extremes, food shortages, dangerous roads, and hostile humans, feral dogs, coyotes, foxes and hawks.
Tuffy and Blue were abandoned when their owner died and their caretakers moved away. FAWN was called and the dogs were rescued. With medical care, good food, and gentle handling, both dogs began to thrive.
Maggie, abandoned in a public park, was forced to fend for herself. She’d take what food she could find and swim across the creek to feed her kittens. When FAWN rescued Maggie she was laying in the creek trying to cool off-not normal behavior! Rushed to the vet, she made a full recovery, was fostered, then adopted.
UNFORTUNATELY MANY RESCUES DON’T HAVE A HAPPY ENDING!
